Mediaset: Messias favourite to start against Lecce – how the attack should look

By Oliver Fisher -

There is a chance that Junior Messias could get a start for AC Milan tomorrow in their game away against Lecce, according to a report.

The rest of the Milan team pretty much picks itself as Mike Maignan’s injury means Ciprian Tatarusanu will get the nod, with a defence of Davide Calabria, Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez expected ahead of him. Sandro Tonali’s suspension means Aster Vranckx should start alongside Ismael Bennacer in midfield.

In view of tomorrow’s match against Lecce, Claudio Raimondi reported on SportMediaset (via MilanNews) that Messias seems to have the advantage over Alexis Saelemaekers to start from the first minute on the right wing.

Completing the trident behind Olivier Giroud will be Brahim Diaz in the middle and Rafael Leao on the left as the Rossoneri look for answers after firing a blank in midweek against Torino in their Coppa Italia exit after extra time.

  1. I don’t think Messias deserves a start. At least Saelemaekers try’s to make a final pass. Messias only looks to cut inside and fire a terrible shot from outside the box.

  2. I like salemakers for the reason that he does try to put crosses into the area ,especially for Olivier Giroud…
    I think the last two games he has done quite well ..
    So apart from that I cannot see us slipping up against lecce …We can only but improve over the last two games .Come on Olivier Giroud,it’s goals we need .
    I have faith in you .We need to win the next few games and then confidence will return ..we need to be less frantic ,and deliver the final ball into decent areas within the 18 yard area ..less shots but more accuracy on target .

  3. Where ia the New Goalkeeper Signed
    Devis Vasquez he is to Lined up not the Old Failed Romanian
    Plus Tomori is Upsent Mined Malck Thiaw or Matteo Gabbia is to be Lined Up
